A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Pining for Plaid

October 26, 2017 14 Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog today and A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Pining for Plaid.  Today, the design time is sharing alternative ideas for using the October, 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.  There were so many great supplies in this month’s kit, it was hard to know where to start!  Let’s take a look at what I created and then you’ll want to hop around and see the rest of today’s inspiration.

Pining for Plaid Paper Pumpkin Kit contents

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Pining for Plaid Paper Pumpkin alternative card from theartfulinker.com

For my first creation, I made an alternative card version.

This alternative will really extend the number of cards you can make with the kit.

My card is on a Basic Black carstock base.

Then I used the Layering Circles to die cut a piece for the center

and added strips for the sides —

all from the cards included in the kit.

Next, I added a ring of Gold Glimmer paper.

Using one of the banners included, I added a sentiment from the kit.

Add a few sequins and the card is done.

For my second project, I created this gift box/home decor item.

The front panel has a little shaker element.

Edited:  I’ve had SO many requests – here are directions

  • Take two cards from the kit and layer them out in landscape orientation.
  • Score 1/4″ on the right hand edge of each card.
  • Remove 1/4″ from the left hand edge of each card.
  • Angled cut the right hand tab and add adhesive.
  • Adhere the tabs to the non-tabbed edges of the other card to form square.

And the top has this lush topper.

To make it, I used Green Sprigs dipped in Embossing Paste and Dazzling Diamonds

Then, I’ve layered lots of ribbon and sequin trim.

For the top and bottom:

  • Cut a 5-5/16″ x  5-5/16″ piece of Basic Black cardstock for the bottom.
  • Score at 5/8″ on all four sides.
  • Cut tabs and assemble around the base of the card square from above for the best fit.

Tip: Add adhesive along the sides of the bottom one side at a time

  • Cut a 5-3/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of Basic Black cardstock for the top.
  • Score at 5/8″ on all four sides
  • Cut tabs and assemble top.

Estimate on ribbon (I didn’t measure) 24″ of Black, Cherry Cobbler and Sequin Trim.

    I never would have thought to highlight the black like you did on your projects, it’s so striking! Thanks for sharing 😀

    • Sara Levin November 2, 2017 at 8:20 am

      Thank Kimberly! Yes, the black just makes the green even more vivid.

      Thanks Monika! I really wanted to work the pretty shakers into my creation. First time on a box fro me.

    What an awesome package! I would hate to open it! Bet there is something pretty awesome in there!

    • Sara Levin October 26, 2017 at 11:37 am

      Thank you Theressa! No fear of opening — the lid comes off. I’ll have to find something awesome to put inside…or can you give an empty box hmmm
